Globe-trotting South African flautist and composer Wouter Kellerman has been nominated for a GRAMMY® Award in the category “Best New Age Album” for “Pangaea”, a collaboration with American composer and music producer David Arkenstone.
Kellerman has proved to be one of South Africa’s foremost musicians since launching his debut album ‘Colour’ in 2008. In 2010 he performed at the FIFA World Cup Closing Ceremony to a global television audience of 700-million people.
Wouter Kellerman has won a GRAMMY® Award for his 2014 album “Winds Of Samsara” (the album debuted at Number 1 on the US New Age Billboard charts spending 11 weeks in the Top 10), and has been nominated in the Best Contemporary Instrumental category in 2015 as well. At home he has been the recipient of eight SAMAS to date.
Wouter Kellerman comments on his GRAMMY® Award Nomination
“Wow, we’re so grateful for the nomination! We’ve penned the new music to express the hope that our fractured and divided world can forge a new identity where we stand and work together – a world where other’s interests are as important as your own, as if we were one like in the super continent Pangaea – it’s the Spring of a New Age, new beginnings indeed. We look forward to taking your imagination on an adventure!”
